Just got my 50i MSport on Friday...interestingly the air filters are not accessible. In fact, I couldn't even find them mentioned in the manual. I guess this is also the case on my 550i since it's the same engine, but I never looked into it on that car. The air filters appear to be tucked under the back side of the plastic engine shroud, and there would have to be a 180 degree turn for the air to enter the intake manifold...not exactly an ideal air pathway.

Definitely not the way I would route the airbox.

Tune is currently 1200 but if you purchase before the 12th you can receive 20% off.

Thank you for considering our tune as I know you have a couple of other options on the table. We have been working strictly on BMW's for 32 years with thousands of cars on the road with our tune and or supercharger systems /turbo systems.

Without going into who's tune is better I will just say our tune has gone through many revisions before coming to a final release. Our tune will work in any climate without throwing boost to high or boost not reached codes. With over 200 X6 /x5 x5m/x6m tunes on the road I can safely say our tune is not only reliable but will offer you as much power as you can safely squeeze out of the stock turbos.

We also offer 3 ways to get your vehicle tuned.

1. Take it to one of our many qualified flash station dealers around the world. Please check this list for dealers in your area. (In red) http://www.activeautowerke.com/dealers.php

2.Send your ecu to us for a quick same day return with 2nd day air included.

3.Purchase a Simon tool and flash your vehicle at home (Allows you to keep your stock file)

I have loaded the AA software to my 50i.

This is crazy fast.. 5th gear 80 with 3k rpm. It pull all the way to 130 no problem without shift to 6th gear.

Off the line.. The tq is scary. I don't have the tool to measure how fast is it. But i can tell it pull a lot harder than stock.
